  • Summer 2016 Course: Crisis Prevention and Intervention Training for Trainers August 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, & 8, 2016 Robert Truscello, Instructor

    In Pennsylvania, Chapter 14 §14.133(c) mandates that educational staff intervene in situations in which a person poses a threat to him/herself or to another in the school setting, and §14.133(c)(2)(iii) directs that staff involved should receive appropriate training. This 6-day course will provide participants with both the expertise and the skills necessary to train others in safe strategies for dealing with these situations. Included are six modules (one per day) that cover safe, hands-on physical interventions appropriate for crisis situations, intervention and training skill development, and preventative information.
